Synopsis

Synopsis

"I started McCarver's book because I was sure he would teach me something. I finished it as Casey Stengel."--The Cincinnati Enquirer

Tim McCarver, baseball's preeminent analyst, has set down all that he knows about how the game should be played and watched. With his trademark wit and style, McCarver explains the fundamentals and proper mechanics at the level necessary for success in the major leagues.
        Baseball for Brain Surgeons and Other Fans is a gold mine for all fans, brain surgeons or otherwise, and anyone learning how to play or coach the game. (Even major leaguers will pick up some pointers.) After the wonderful 1998 season, America's pastime has never been more popular, and with the deeper knowledge and understanding of baseball that Brain Surgeons provides, any fan will be able to watch it like a pro.

Familiar to all fans who watch baseball's jewel events, he has broadcast eight All-Star Games and nine World Series since 1984. During his twenty-one years (1959-1980) as a major league catcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, Philadel-phia Phillies, Montreal Expos, and Boston Red Sox, he played in two All-Star Games and appeared in the postseason six times, including on the Cardinals' world championship teams in 1964 and 1967. He lives in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania, with his wife, Anne. They have two daughters, Kathy and Kelly.

Danny Peary is an acclaimed sportswriter and film and television critic whose books include Cult Movies; Alternate Oscars; Cult Baseball Players; We Played the Game: 65 Players Remember Baseball's Greatest Era, 1947-1964; and Super Bowl: The Game of Their Lives.
